Have a Simply Stellar Summer!

Have a Simply Stellar Summer!
From exciting eclipses to major transits by Jupiter and Saturn -- and a lengthy Mercury retrograde period thrown in for good measure -- there's a host of cosmic activity brewing all summer long. How will your Sun sign handle the heat?

Jupiter, after experiencing a firestorm of intense Aries energy this spring, is now residing in Taurus for a year-long visit. Not only will this transit bring some welcome calm and simplicity to your summer, but this planet of expansion, opportunity and hope will offer the chance to enjoy no shortage of earthy abundance. Be on the lookout for new moneymaking opportunities and ways to create greater security and comfort for yourself.

Saturn went direct in Libra in mid-June, emphasizing a desire for commitment in relationships; in fact, this transit gave us a chance to create a solid and sustainable future with those we love most. Saturn in Libra also demonstrates how to create more balance and beauty in your life, and focusing on these distinctly Libran themes throughout the summer will help you develop a greater sense of inner peace and grace.

An eclipse on July 1 will certainly bring changes, especially for those born under Gemini and Cancer. Eclipses always offer a few surprises, so prepare yourself by making room for new experiences and people to arrive in your life. Start by clearing clutter from your home and letting go of what no longer serves you.

Mercury's retrograde period (August 3-26), meanwhile, will offer some trickster energy to the dog days of summer. This may not be the best time to take a vacation ... but working too hard won't do, either. If you can, plan low-risk activities that don't involve much planning, commitment or brainpower: Plenty of porchsitting, beach-combing and close-to-home staycations will fit the bill for this potentially tricky transit.

And how will your own sun sign deal with this summer's astrological activity?

Aries, Libra, Cancer and Capricorn will need to slow down and take it easy, releasing expectations for the future while making adjustments to the present. Fun activities should include quality time with loved ones, plenty of home-cooked meals and drifty days spent at the beach or in the woods.

Taurus and Pisces will feel a respite from the fast-burning tempo of Aries. Now's the time for pleasure, so indulge and make the most of the long, lazy days of summer. Daydreaming, music, art and nature will be the finest food for your soul this season.

Gemini will require the grounding influence of Jupiter in Taurus to keep things from becoming too topsy-turvy. Sure, change is in the air, but that's no reason to not enjoy the pleasures of summer. Keep yourself grounded with plenty of long walks, inspiring books and visits to cultural hot spots.

Virgo will adore the earthy simplicity of Jupiter in Taurus, a connection that's sure to make for a summer filled with Earth's bounty. Camping trips, gardening and other nature-oriented pleasures will serve you well -- just be careful to not overdo it once Mercury turns retrograde in your sign in August!

Leo and Sagittarius will want to slow down now that Aries is no longer running the show, but rest assured that fun can still be had! Plan on all the usual summertime adventures, but as with Virgo, be sure to keep all the details simple during August's fussy Mercury retrograde period.

Scorpio and Aquarius will likely be chomping at the bit, as Jupiter in Taurus could potentially curb their fun and create a more serious pace to life. Make the most of summer by paying homage to your past and rediscovering the simple summertime pleasures of childhood: barbecuing, drive-in movies, kite-flying and even skinny-dipping!
